November 3, 2010 | Leave a Comment

Raleigh, NC –On Monday, October 25 the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University, the law firm of Williams Mullen, Legal Aid of North Carolina, and the Raleigh Housing Authority partnered together for the ‘Wills for Seniors’ program to benefit residents of Glenwood Towers in Raleigh. The program was one of several events held across the region during National Pro Bono Week (October 25-29, 2010).

Beneficiaries of the program, all residents of Glenwood Towers, received complementary estate planning assistance, which consisted of a will, general power of attorney, health care power of attorney, and an advanced medical directive. A team consisting of a Williams Mullen attorney and Campbell Law School student interviewed each individual, and prepared and facilitated the execution of all documents for each participant that same day.

“Programs like these are invaluable to our students,” said Roger Manus, Director of Campbell Law School’s Senior Law Clinic. “The opportunity to serve our community in this way gives them the chance to work with practicing attorneys and see first hand the legal needs of seniors in Wake County.”
